                          Kibo Energy PLC (‘Kibo’ or the ‘Company’)
                  Renewal of Water Permits for MCPP to retain EIA Certification

Kibo Energy PLC, the multi-asset, Africa focused, energy company, is pleased to announce a status
update on the Water Rights of the Mbeya Coal to Power Project (“MCPP”) in Tanzania.

The Company was informed by its Tanzanian subsidiary, Mbeya Power Ltd, that its Water Rights,
acquired during August 2018, were successfully renewed ahead of schedule. This ensures that the
MCPP EIA certification remains valid and maintains the right to use large quantities of water, a strategic
commodity for the MCPP, specifically by the Power Station.

Louis Coetzee, CEO of Kibo, commented, “I am very encouraged by the overall progress being made
at MCCP. The renewal of the Water Permits, so soon after the recent approval and processing of seven
Mining Rights for the Project, further confirms my confidence in its potential and I look forward to
updating shareholders as we continue to successfully advance its development.”

Kibo Energy PLC is a multi-asset, Africa focused, energy company positioned to address the acute
power deficit, which is one of the primary impediments to economic development in Sub-Saharan
Africa. To this end, it is the Company’s objective to become a leading independent power producer in
the region.

Kibo is simultaneously developing three similar coal-fuelled power projects: the Mbeya Coal to Power
Project (‘MCPP’) in Tanzania; the Mabesekwa Coal Independent Power Project (‘MCIPP’) in Botswana;
and the Benga Independent Power Project (‘BIPP’) in Mozambique. By developing these projects in
parallel, the Company intends to leverage considerable economies of scale and timing in respect of
strategic partnerships, procurement, equipment, human capital, execution capability / capacity and
project finance.

Additionally, the Company has a 60% interest in MAST Energy Developments Limited (‘MED’), a
private UK registered company targeting the development and operation of flexible power plants to
service the Reserve Power generation market.
